shipTravel Talks with Zarin Machanda: A quick tour of the Galapagos Islands Dec. 10

Following the scheduled Travel Talk, Professor Zarin Machanda will present to HCSD and guests her experiences leading tours through the Galapagos Islands

Harvard Alumni Travel would be delighted if HCSD members and guests joined their Travel Talk with Professor Zarin Machanda (separate registration) and immediately following her lecture, from 1-1:30 p.m. PacificTime, they invite the attendees to join a private follow up conversation with Zarin where she will talk about her Galapagos experiences, share some photos, and answer any questions. Additionally, Harvard Alumni Travel is offering two Galapagos cruises in 2021 and 2022 so they’d be more than happy to share and/or follow up with details on these trips.

Registration for the Talk is HERE


12/10 from 1 pm to 1:30 pm Pacific Time. Zoom information provided with the registration confirmation email.
